Spain | Baines Pacharán $35; uvawines.com
This digestif—a sweet Iberian sloe gin—has a cherry flavor mixed with anise and spice. Drink lightly chilled and neat to end the evening, or top with cava to kick things off.
Scotland | Black Bull 40 Year Old Blended Scotch $246; vineandtable.com
This cask-strength scotch blends aged malts to create a grassy taste with a procession of spices and fruit: vanilla, baked apples, caramelized grapefruit. Add a splash of water—but hold the ice—to open it up.
Holland | Bols Genever Gin $40; uvawines.com
This cousin to the drink-it-with-tonic dry gin has the familiar flavors (juniper, citrus, anise), plus a backbone of malt. Swap it for the whiskey in an old-fashioned.
